    Probably one of the greatest cooking shows ever, these guys do some crazy epic meals that mostly look delicious, such as massive cakes made out of macaroni and cheese or a lasagna constructed out of fast food, even building a house out of pure meat. This team is dedicated to the awesomeness of EpicMealTime, with each team member representing one of EpicMealTime's dishes as a nickname (nicknames in shorter forms on PO).

    [COLOR="rgb(65, 105, 225)"]Team Building[/COLOR]

    Haxorus is a beast, so I definitely started out with him. Latios provided Dual Dragon offensive techniques from both sides of the spectrum when coupled with Haxorus. Ferrothorn acts as a defensive pivot on the team to help provide Stealth Rock. Mamoswine just provides power and gives a lot of help to a team that can use Ice priority to knock off dragons. Scizor gives more priority support, and Rotom can cripple walls with Trick or dent things hard with Specs Boosted attacks.

    @ Focus Sash
    Meal: Boar Bacon Cake
    Trait: Snow Cloak
    EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
    Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
    - Ice Shard
    - Icicle Spear
    - Earthquake
    - Stone Edge

    Mamoswine has a ridiculous amount of power, and succeeds at the lead role greatly, being able to effectively deal with Tyranitar, Thundurus, and other such leads. Earthquake smacks down Tar, Stone Edge provides additional coverage, Icicle Spear allows me to break Substitutes- a neccessity for things like Espeon and Whimsicott- and Ice Shard provides priority.

    "More bacon? More like- Boar bacon!"

    @ Choice Specs
    Meal: Ninja Turtle Soup
    Trait: Levitate
    EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
    Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
    - Hydro Pump
    - Volt Switch
    - Hidden Power Fire
    - Trick

    Specs Rotom can actually hit hard with Hydro Pump, denting a lot of common walls. Trick allows me to cripple annoyances such as Ferrothorn and Blissey. Volt Switch is one of my scouting moves on the team, the other being Scizor's U-Turn. Dual Scouting really gives an advantage and allows me to bring in the right Pokemon at the right time. Hidden Power Fire gives me the jump on Ferrothorn and other Grass types that could come in.

    "Turtle Soup? Smells disgusting. Let's put some of that goody goody (bacon)."

    @ Leftovers
    Meal: Bacon Nachos
    Trait: Iron Barbs
    EVs: 252 HP / 120 Def / 136 SDef
    Sassy Nature (+SDef, -Spd)
    - Stealth Rock
    - Gyro Ball
    - Power Whip
    - Leech Seed

    This provides Stealth Rock and recovery for my team through Leech Seed, and makes a very useful defensive pivot. Power Whip and Gyro Ball are essentially standard attacks, and I prefer using both so I can hit more than just Water/Ground types with something hard.

    "I love nachos. Using crispy bacon as chips, and tequila guac instead of guac guac? Smart."

    @ Choice Band
    Meal: Ben Roethlisberger 50 pound SuperBowl Sandwich
    Trait: Mold Breaker
    EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
    Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
    - Dual Chop
    - Outrage
    - Earthquake
    - Brick Break

    Haxorus hits like a truck with a CHoice Band. There's no better way to describe it. Outrage can OHKO or 2HKO pretty much everything that doesn't resist it, and really its only true counter is Skarmory thanks to Bronzong's Levitate cancelling out to Mold Breaker. Brick Break can do damage against Skarm and Ballon Steels, however.

    "20 pounds of bacon, 20 pounds of ground beef! 10 pound bun? Well that's a 50 pound SuperBowl burger."

    @ Choice Band
    Meal: Epic Hor'Doeurves
    Trait: Technician
    EVs: 248 HP / 252 Atk / 8 Spd
    Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
    - Bullet Punch
    - Superpower
    - U-turn
    - Pursuit

    Scizor mainly serves as a secondary scout and a priority revenge killer, two things that really help out the team. U-Turn and Bullet Punch are the most common moves that Scizor uses, but Pursuit does come in handy when squaring off against stat-lowered Latios or Reuniclus that lack Hidden Power Fire and attempt to flee. Superpower is great to catch Heatran or Tyranitar on the switch.

    "Mini Mac Pizzas! Bacoon Ragoon... with crabs. Bacon weave tacos, with tequila guac, and salsa guac! Steak and bacon burritos! 2-dimensional bacon with caviar! Baconator potato skins, cream cheesy bacon balls. Philly cheese steak bacon quiches. Jalapeno bacon cream cheese poppers. Bacon wrapped mac sliders, and bacon tarts... really nice bacon tarts."

    @ Life Orb
    Meal: Puzzle of the Lambs- Cerberus
    Trait: Levitate
    EVs: 4 Def / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
    Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
    - Draco Meteor
    - Surf
    - Psyshock
    - Hidden Power [Fire]

    The other powerful hitting dragon on the team, Latios attacks from the special side of the offensive spectrum, coming down hard with Draco Meteors and Surfs on teams. Psyshock let's me smack around special walls, and Hidden Power Fire gives me the jump on Ferrothorn and Scizor and Forretress. This guy actually works quite well with Ferrothorn, since Ferro can take the Bug, Ice, Dark, or Dragon attacks aimed at Latios and Latios can take Fire, Fighting, or Ground attacks aimed at Ferro (a lot of people like to use Earthquake on Ferro, giving Latios a free switch-in).

    "Cerberus. The tri-head that guards the Underworld. Bacon lamb burgers in its butt."

    Excadrill- If Rotom comes in on an Earthquake, it can take any of Excadrill's attacks and finish it with Hydro Pump. Latios falls in the same boat but has to watch for X-Scissor.
    Conkeldurr- Latios kills in one shot with Draco Meteor, but could otherwise be problematic. Luckily Guts version is easier with Latios because it can take a Mach Punch and swoop down with Draco Meteor since burn already chips away at Conkelderp's health.
    Hydreigon- Ferrothorn laughs at it's Dragon attacks, Mamoswine can abuse its Ice Shard or Icicle Spear, Latios outspeeds and beats it.
    Volcarona- This is a problem if it gets a Butterfly Dance up, so I need a way to beat it.
    Terrakion-Scizor can kill off with Bullet Punch, or Latios can outspeed and KO with surf. Scarf X-Scissor could be problematic to Latios, though.
    Landorus- Mamoswine can Ice Shard, Latios is faster and wins with Surf.
    Chandelure-Rotom is faster and can live Shadow Ball from Scarfed versions to smack around with Hydro Pump.
    Haxorus- Latios is faster than non-Scarf versions, Ferrothorn walls it if it locks itself into Outrage and can Leech Seed and sap at it's health. Mamoswine can pick off weakened ones, as can Scizor.
    Virizion- Scizor and Mamoswine both do well here with their priority attacks, and Latios can also outspeed and deliver a Draco Meteor to it.
    Thundurus- Mamoswine has a field day with this guy.
    Scrafty- Another problematic threat, especially the Bulk Up version. Scizor can beat Dragon Dance versions with Superpower, but Latios can't OHKO with Draco Meteor, so it can be a problem if it gets a Bulk Up.
    Reuniclus- Scizor beats non-HP Fire Versions, and Rotom can Trick it if it tries to Calm Mind up or hammer it with Shadow Ball.
    Victini- Rotom can beat it, Latios can outspeed and Surf it.
    Mienshao- Scizor one-shots with Bullet Punch.
    Darmanitan- Rotom can beat it out, as can Latios.
    Tornadus- Latios can come in to revenge non-Scarf versions, Scizor can take it down with a Bullet Punch, and Mamoswine can Ice Shard it.
    Latias- Mamoswine and Scizor have fun with Latias, and Ferrothorn can take its Dragon attacks.
    Garchomp-Mamoswine can Ice Shard it, Latios is faster than scarfed versions and can revenge it as well, Ferrothorn slowly wears down those locked into Outrage.
    Salamence- Latios and Mamoswine both do great jobs here.
    Cloyster- Even at +2, Scizor's Bullet Punch can still beat Cloyster's Ice Shard in terms of damage to the opponent, KOing Cloyster.
    Politoed- Ferrothorn and Rotom-W generally force it out with Power Whip or Volt Switch.
    Venusaur- Scizor can Bullet Punch or Mamoswine can Ice Shard Chlorophyll Forms. (how else is it in OU lol)
    Ninetails- Earthquake from Mamoswine or Haxorus is hands down the best option here.
    Toxicroak- Latios does a great job, Scizor can priority revenge it, and Haxorus can wipe it out with Earthquake.
    Breloom- Ice Shard from Mamoswine and a boosted attack from Latios or Haxorus work, but Spore is annoying and will get one guy at least. Haxorus can also break Breloom's subs with Dual Chop and stop Focus Punch.
    Scizor- Latios' Hidden Power does the trick, but Rotom can also deal serious damage with Hydro Pump.
    Ludicolo- Ferrothorn takes the Leech Seeds and can use Power Whip to wear Ludi down, Latios can bring down with Draco Meteor.
    Metagross- Haxorus and Mamoswine both take it down.
    Infernape- Latios walls everything but U-Turn on Infernape, and Rotom can also net a kill with Hydro Pump.
    Heatran- Latios and Rotom have Surf, Scizor has Superpower, Haxorus and Mamoswine both have Earthquake. Check.
    Dragonite- Mamoswine, Latios, and Haxorus all outspeed and bring it down. Hopefully Stealth Rock is up when it's in to nullify Multi-Scale.
    Whimsicott- Mamoswine and Haxorus can both break it's subs, Ferrothorn can take Leech Seeds and Wall it.
    Jirachi- Ferrothorn walls all but Fire Punch/ Superachi, Mamoswine and Haxorus can both use Earthquake to deal damage.
    Rotom-W- Ferrothorn and Latios can bring it down, and Rotom can take its trick to annoy it.
    Gyarados- Latios beats with Thunderbolt.
    Suicune- Ferrothorn can Leech Seed and wall Suicune, Scizor and Haxorus both dent it hard, and Latio can nail with Thunderbolt.
    Kabutops- Scizor's priority moves can bring it down, Ferrothorn laughs at it, and Latios can Thunderbolt Kabutops but has to be wary for X-Scissor,
    Tyranitar- Mamoswine, Scizor, and Haxorus all have powerful attacks to smack down this beast with.
    Gliscor- Mamoswine, Rotom, and Latios can dish it out their super effective attacks to bring down Gliscor.

    Well, that's all I have. Please rate and help me make changes!!

    Psyshock is better than T-Bolt on Latios. Thunderbolt doesn't even hit anything that the rest of your moves wont destroy. Psyshock lets you murder special walls and acts as a "safe STAB move" move so you don't have to get -2 from Draco Meteor to plow through things.


    Also HP Fire is better than Shadow Ball on Rotom-W. It hits move of its common switch ins see: grass types and Ferrothorn.
